From Puppy Love to Wedding Dress Alterations

A Wedding Dress Story by Lara Curtis My husband and I met at a mutual friend’s pre-deployment backyard BBQ and our dogs (my 70lb German Shepherd and his 15lb rescued beagle mix) instantly fell in love so it was by God’s grace that we too fell in love. We are both military, so in between my fiancé deploying and my long TDY’s, planning a wedding was challenging at best. I was lucky enough to find my wedding dress at the first shop I went to. However, once it arrived it was several sizes too big and so began the drastic...

Jordan Found Her Wedding Dress in the Nick of TIme

Amber Tells Her Daughter’s Wedding Dress Story I had flown up from South Carolina to join my daughter Jordan for her appointment at Rizik’s in Washington, DC to be measured for and order her wedding gown; after a couple of visits to try on gowns, she had finally settled on an all lace, very fitted Jim Hjelm wedding dress that we were both certain was “her” dress. Since we were a few minutes early and they were busy with other customers, we were idly browsing the racks when I spotted this glamorous, 30’s style...

Wearing a Vera Wang Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story by Kath W My Vera Wang gown is made of four different kinds of lace. The bodice is covered with layers of corded leaf lace and a fine circular netted lace, while the skirt swirls with organza, chantilly lace, circular netted lace, and bands of horsehair. I altered the wedding dress to have a sweetheart, scoop-like neckline, and also wore a Rosa Clara belt. We purchased my gown and accessories from the Nordstrom’s Bridal Suite in Scottsdale, Arizona. Derek and I got married at Chateau St. Jean Winery in Kenwood,...

The Beginnings of a Wedding Dress Heirloom

A Wedding Dress Story by Sammie E I was married to my sweetheart, Ian, on July 26, 2013 in Newberg, Oregon. One of the many blessings surrounding our wedding story was Ian’s mother, Jane, graciously making my wedding gown. We picked out everything she needed together at Fabric Depot in Portland, Oregon. Her creation was absolutely breathtaking, as well as practical and sentimental. My buttons were roses, a nod to my family’s heritage. The wedding dress bustled in such a way that the back looked smooth (instead of pilled up). The...

A Wedding Dress Designed by Veluz

A Wedding Dress Story by Edelwisa My wedding dress was custom-made by a famous Filipino designer, Veluz. She resides in the Philippines and she is very known for the intricate details of her gown. I wore the wedding dress when I married my husband, Tetsuya Fukaishi, in Disney Aulani in Hawaii last May 18, 2014. We did a postnup pictorial on top of the Haleakala Crater in Maui, which what I think caused the dress to be so dirty. More pictures of Edelwisa in Her Wedding...
